A clinical trial was performed to evaluate 3BNC117, a potent anti-HIV-1 antibody, in infected individuals during suppressive antiretroviral therapy (ART) and subsequent analytical treatment interruption (ATI). The circulating reservoir was evaluated by quantitative and qualitative outgrowth assay (Q2VOA) at entry and after 6 months, prior to ATI. Although there were no significant quantitative changes in the size of the reservoir, the composition of circulating reservoir clones varied over the 6-month period before treatment interruption in a manner that did not correlate with antibody sensitivity. The neutralization profile obtained from the reservoir by Q2VOA was predictive of time to rebound after ATI, and thus of antibody efficacy. Although 3BNC117 binding site amino acid variants found in rebound viruses pre-existed in the latent reservoir, only 3 of 217 rebound viruses were identical to 868 latent viruses. Instead many of the rebound viruses appeared to be recombinants, even in individuals with resistant reservoir viruses. By incorporating the possibility of recombination, 63% of the rebound viruses could have derived from the observed latent reservoir. In conclusion, viruses emerging during ATI in individuals treated with 3BNC117 are not the dominant species found in the circulating reservoir, but instead appear to represent recombinants.
